There is a growing need to have your head on a swivel and be situationally aware of your surroundings. As Jeff Houston puts it, “It’s not rocket science.” There are simple steps that can be made in your everyday life that should become habits. If you’re standing on a sidewalk waiting for an Uber and conversing with your friend, you each should be facing the other and be aware of what is going on behind your counterpart. Or, if you are withdrawing money from an ATM, constantly be looking over your shoulder and be aware of what is going on behind you.
NRA Carry Guard strives to educate and inform responsibly armed Americans. There are a wealth of resources NRA Carry Guard offers specifically on situational awareness. NRA Carry Guard Magazine offers an article in each issue on situations that average Americans find themselves in, what to look out for in these situations and how to navigate them. Situational awareness is heavily emphasized in the training courses through the Rights & Responsibilities series, classroom sessions, the emphasis on scanning with a firearm and the force-on-force scenario component. Recently, NRA Carry Guard created a course tailored specifically for scenario training and bettering one’s situational awareness.
